James (back) is expected to play against the Rockets on Sunday, Sam Amico of FOX Sports reports.

James sat out Friday's game against the Pacers to rest his ailing back but there's nothing to be overly concerned about as coach David Blatt routinely rests his veteran players. With Kyrie Irving (shoulder) already ruled out, James will likely have even more opportunities on offense against an average Houston defense.

With James and teammate Kyrie Irving (shoulder) both sidelined Friday, Kevin Love figures to assume the bulk of the Cavaliers' scoring duties against the Pacers.
